From my experience if the car behaves it good out of the box I have found that putting a pro setup on it makes it worse because it follows their driving style (of even carpet condition) rather than mine. If I were you I'd make little changes only and only the ones that definitely improves one at a time. If it seems the same go back to original. Usually out of the box setup is balanced.

For carpet make sure it is SLAMMED to the ground, really low like 17mm. That alone should really help. Also if you have the gear diff they tend to work better on carpet, although I have not tried the gear diff in this car.

3mm will give more entry steering. the manual explains the effects and what ackerman and wb changes are reccomended with the changes.

best advice is take a practice day at your most visited track amd spend the day changing settings so you can see what effects you get with each change.

This is great advice. The only problem is most people are too lazy to take the time to do this and just want somebody who's taken the time to learn what the changes do to just hand over setups

got to run my car for the first time in a long time. I was on an outdoor track that they used sugar water on. I ended up having to go to flat arms / tower to tame the front end down. It was crazy how much of a difference that made, so anyone who feels they have too much or too reactive steering, definitely take these guys advice on the rear motor front arms / tower.

Could not get a grasp on the MM stock and mod today so switched back to RM... Tried all kinds of setups in practice but the RM is just alot faster outdoors... I have two conversion kits for cheap!!! (Rm to MM)

Had someone ask what the fan mount made by my friend looks like with the body on. This is with a JConcepts Silencer.

Great video. I might also give this a go. I found success polishing the hell out of the ball cup with the dremel, but this seems like a better solution to the problem.

How about polishing the ball while it's inside the cup(rod end).

That's what I did. I took the ball stud out, put some graphite grease on it, put it back in and with a hex tool in the dremel I then polished the inside of it.

Finally got to run my MM last night for the first time with something other than a 17.5 in it. I had gone through and redone everything so it was much closer to some of the team setups thinking I was going to be looking for rear bite. Car felt really good other than a slight push until i broke the front shock tower. By the way i will agree the Hard parts are much mrs fragile. The hit that broke it wasn't much. Anyway i am running the flat arms and still had the GW front tower in my box so i figured id try it. Middle hole on the flat was pretty close to the inside on the GW tower. The only other thing i did was adjust the ride height. Car felt a little better to me. Mind you i haven't driven the car much in the past 6 months and i am by no mean one of the fast guys but i could feel a slight positive difference.

I miss Wild Cherry. J/K.

Ran my car mod with square pack using what is posted as Cavs setup for Reedy Race and the car felt really good and was super fast. Drove a mod 22 2.0 with same motor and felt sluggish, had a short pack in it. Did not weight both cars, but felt similar in weight.
